INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 1 12
    lbs asparagus spears, trimmed (jumbo or extra-large)
  • 2
    tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 2
    ounces white goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
  • 12
    cup fresh white breadcrumbs

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F Coat asparagus with 1 tablespoons melted butter, then salt lightly.
  • Arrange in an oven-to-table shallow baking dish large enough to hold asparagus in a single layer.
  • Evenly distribute goat cheese over asparagus, then sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoons melted butter over breadcrumbs. Bake asparagus until tender-crisp and breadcrumbs lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
